Tips to start playing

  • Download the app :remember that this is a mobile game. Keep in mind that you will consume a certain amount of data to be able to play, it is not something to hang out without Internet anywhere. Also take a look at the minimum requirements .
  • Get ready to walk: thewhole Pokémon GO concept! it is based on walking. You will have to walk to get Poké Balls, to hatch eggs … hence the data consumption. There won’t always be a Wi-Fi network to connect to.
  • No need to spend real money:this goes hand in hand with the previous point. You can spend real money, but most things are achieved by playing and visiting PokéStops, for example.
  • Don’t Capture Everything You See:As a certain comic strip said, if you capture every Zubat you find, you won’t be able to capture Lapras when he appears.
  • Not because you like Pokémon, you will like Pokémon GO !: keepin mind that the game, in addition to the concept of “walking to get things,” changes a lot in the way you play. There are no turn-based battles as in previous installments, if that is mandatory for you, this application may not convince you.
  • Choose the Pokémon that are worth it:to find out which creatures are worth struggling with, you can use our Evolution Calculator to find out if your Pokémon is one of the best or not or assess its IV’s.
  • Be careful with cheating:this is a game in which you must be connected. Don’t use third party apps to cheat on GPS or anything like that, because you may find yourself temporarily or permanently banned and lose all your progress.
  • Always play with time and safety:this is not a common advice in a guide, but in this case and given everything that has happened around Pokémon GO !, it is necessary to emphasize it. You play in the real world, look where you are going and how you do it, be careful when crossing a street, pay attention not to bump into people, do not neglect your pet if you take the opportunity to play while you walk it, do not forget that you have left a frying pan on the fire, etc. … Life is not a game and there are no second chances.
